Ricky Weiss Claims First-Career Southern All Star Victory
WoO Action at Cherokee Speedway and Lavonia Speedway Next

Headingley, Manitoba, Canada (04/30/19) – Ricky Weiss achieved yet another career first over the weekend. The pilot of the Derrick’s Sandblasting #7w Kakela Farms/ J&C Properties/ Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Vic Hill Race Engine Super Late Model claimed the $5,000 top prize with the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series on Friday night at Smoky Mountain Speedway.

For Weiss, the win has been a few weeks in the making.

“We’ve been tweaking [on the car] and we’ve been fast,” he commented. “It seems like we’ve just needed the car to come in a little faster. If it was a 50-lap race, we wished it was a 60. If it was a 60, we wished it was a 70. Finally, it was 40 tonight and we got it all done.”

With many of the top weekend events affected by rain, the field was stacked at Smoky Mountain Speedway. While many drivers dreaded the national invaders, Weiss welcomed the challenge as a measuring stick.

“When the Lucas Oil race rained out and we heard everybody was coming to Smoky Mountain. A lot of people were kinda cringing, wishing they weren’t here,” Weiss said. “But we want to race against the best and run with them because the big paying shows have got ‘em all.”

Ricky Weiss was one of 36 Southern All Star (SAS) Dirt Racing Series entries on hand at Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tennessee) on Friday evening for the Rockin’ with the Stars event. He was debuting a brand-new Sweet Bloomquist Race Car.

Locking his spot into the opening night feature with the third-fastest time in his qualifying group, Weiss earned the fourth-starting position for the A-Main. Slipping past race-leader Ashton Winger on lap-11, Ricky built a comfortable lead throughout the remaining 29 circuits, en route to capturing his third win of the season and a $5,000 payday. The victory also marked the first Southern All Star triumph of his career.

Chris Madden, Ashton Winger, Jimmy Owens, and Brandon Overton rounded out the Top-5 finishers in the 40-lap affair.

Weiss gets back to business with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series with a pair of $10,000-to-win events. On Friday night he’ll be in action at Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, South Carolina), and on Saturday evening the action shifts to Lavonia Speedway (Lavonia, Georgia).
Ricky is currently sixth in the latest series standings and leads the WoO Rookie of the Year battle.

Logan Roberson Shines Bright on Sunday at Potomac Speedway
Races to Win No. 5 of 2019 Campaign

Waynesboro, Virginia (04/30/19) –
Logan Roberson streaked to his fifth win of 2019 under bright sunshine on Sunday afternoon at Maryland’s Potomac Speedway. He took the lead with two laps on his way to parking his Wynbridge Inc. No. 17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Crate Late Model in Victory Lane.

“Potomac Speedway moved their show from Friday night to Sunday afternoon due to rain, and honestly I didn’t know what to expect out of the track in daytime conditions,” Roberson said. “However, it ended up being pretty racy. Anytime you can win from the seventh-starting spot in daytime conditions, you had a good surface to work with. Ben [Bowie] drove a great race, but thankfully we were able to sneak past him with a few laps remaining.

“We’re headed up to Russ King’s shop this weekend to pick up our new car. I really want to thank Russ for all of his help and support. He really does a lot to help our program perform at a top level.”

On Sunday afternoon Logan Roberson made the short trip to Potomac Speedway (Budds Creek, Maryland), where he was seeking a triumph in the 2019 edition of the Ernie Jones Memorial.

Earning the seventh-starting position for the A-Main via preliminary events, Roberson snuck past race-leader Ben Bowie with two laps remaining en route to his fifth win of the season. Bowie, Darren Alvey, Jeremy Pilkerton, and Sam Archer completed the Top-5 finishers.

The plans for this weekend are still up in the air as Roberson keeps an eye on the forecast once again. The team tentatively plans to compete on Saturday evening at either Virginia Motor Speedway (Jamaica, Virginia) or Volunteer Speedway (Bulls Gap, Tennessee).

Sides Battles Wet Weather Throughout Long Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSONVILLE, Ill. (April 30, 2019) - Mother Nature wasn't favorable last weekend for Jason Sides and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

Sides had a three-race weekend scheduled, but only the first night on Friday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., was completed. He qualified 14th quickest and placed fourth in a heat race to lock into the 14 th starting position for the main event.

"It started off halfway decent," he said. "I did what I thought we were supposed to do and ran around there on the cushion during qualifying. I had what I thought was a decent time. Someone in our group went to the bottom and picked up half a second. Then everyone went to the bottom. We went from being third or fourth quick to 14th quick. It wasn't very good.

"They tilled the track and I thought we were going to be pretty good for the A Main, but we were a little tight. Halfway through the race it blew off. I got in behind Brian Brown and he checked up. I spun myself around and went through the infield and came back out a lap down. Then we had a red flag. That helped where the tires cooled and I ended up passing four or five cars that we were racing with."

Sides rallied for a 17th-place run.

Saturday's show at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., rained out and an event on Sunday at Jacksonville Speedway didn't end much better. Sides qualified 17th quickest in his group and ended ninth in a heat race before rain washed out the action before the Last Chance Showdown took the green flag.

Sides will race close to home this Friday when the World of Outlaws invade Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

"It'd be fun if we do get it in," he said. "It's good to run close to home so the people who don't get to travel can see us."

The weekend concludes on Saturday at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind.


April 26 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Qualifying: 14; Heat race: 4 (4); Feature: 17 (14).

April 28 - Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 9 (9); B Main: Rained Out (-).

Skinner Opens 29th Season of Racing With Top-Five Run in Mississippi

Inside Line Promotions - BYRAM, Miss. (April 30, 2019) - Marshall Skinner kicked off his 29th season of racing with a solid top-five run Saturday night at Jackson Motor Speedway during an ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Gulf South Region event.

"We decided to go to Jackson at the last minute," he said. "We hadn't planned on racing there on Friday, even though that got canceled. My dad's in the hospital and we were waiting to see what was going to happen with him. When we found out they weren't going to do surgery on him we decided to go."

Skinner began shaking off about six months of driving rust in his heat race during the King of the Wings event.

"I didn't do so well in the heat race and messed up a bit," he said. "I started fifth and finished fifth. I found out I was real rusty and out of shape. We struggled with the water pump drive in the heat race, but I was able to get it fixed for the feature."

The heat race finish slotted Skinner 13th on the starting grid for the night's 22-car main event.

"The track was really racy for me," he said. "I just ran where the others weren't. I was able to get by quite a few good cars on the top and the bottom of the track. I had a hard time getting by Channin (Tankersley). Once I did, I was able to run down (Tim) Crawley. But it was just a 25-lap race and I ran out of laps and finished fourth."

Skinner's achievement was more notable given that many of his competitors already had a number of races under their belts this year.

"I had my car ready to race earlier this year," he said. "But I've just been too busy with other things. Work has been crazy busy this year. We just can't keep up. Plus my wife is a CPA so she's been really busy with taxes. And I have kids who have things going on."

Skinner has an indefinite racing schedule for 2019 that will revolve around when time allows.

"I'd love to race a lot, but it's difficult to with work being so busy," he said. "We'll just take things as they come and race when we can."

He tentatively plans on returning to action on May 11 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and ASCS Mid-South Region.


April 27 - Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss. - Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 4 (13).


1 races, 0 wins, 1 top five, 1 top 10, 1 top 15, 1 top 20

They help us out tremendously. If we go over there to do some business they want to take us out to dinner and we do the same when they're around here. They're just wonderful people who are great to do business with."
